T,> the Honorable, Ike City Council of the City of 

Cliicdffo: 

(iENTLEMEN — I desire to advise Your Honorable Body 
that I have hoard with deep regret of the death of 
Hempstead Washburne, a former Mayor of the City of 
Chicago, and believing it to be suitable and proper 
that some official cognizance should be taken by Your 
Honorable Body, upon his death, I transmit herewith 
a resolution that I have caused to be prepared for such 
action as Your Honorable Body may desire to take. 

Yours very truly, 
(Signed) Wm. Hale Thompson, 

Mayor. 

Unanimous consent was given for consideration of 
the resolution submitted with the foregoing communi- 
cation. 

Aid. Walker moved to adopt said resolution. 

The motion was carried unanimously by a rising 
vote. 

The following is said resolution as adopted: 

WHEREAS. The hand of death has recently removed 
from our midst Hempstead Washburne, one of our 
most esteemed and beloved citizens; now, therefore, 
be it 

Resolved, That the City of Chicago mourns the 
death of its former Mayor and that in his removal 
from our midst the city has lost one of its most valued 
citizens. He was a man whose sterling qualities and 
high character so appealed to the cosmopolitan elec- 
torate of the City of Chicago that he was chosen to be 
the chief executive oflicer of the city, and in the dis- 
charge of the high duties devolving upon that office he 
proved himself to be a man of executive ability, in- 
tegrity and learning and possessed of the keen sense 
of justice which enabled him to administer that high 
office with honor to himself and with great benefit to 
the inhabitants of the city, that the City of Chicago, 
through the Council, speaks to the world its high ap- 
preciation of the character and ability of Hempstead 
Washburne; its grief at his death, and its profound and 
sincere sympathy with his family; be it further 

Resolved, That a copy of this testimonial to the mem- 
ory of our former Mayor be spread upon the records 
of the City Council and that a copy thereof suitably 
engrossed be forwarded to his widow.

izing the City Treasurer to loan the sum of $1,750,-

The following is said ordinance as passed : 

Whereas, At the time of the preparation of the An- 
nual Appropriation Bill for the Year 1918, a committee 
representing the banks and large financial interests of 
the City of Chicago appeared before the Committee on 
Finance of the City Council and volunteered assistance 
to meet the payrolls of the City for the last three months 
of the fiscal year in case the salaries of certain employes 
of the City were increased to keep pace with the exi- 
gencies of war and their largely increased war time ex- 
penses; and 

Whereas, The offer was made in good faith and acted 
on by the City Council so that such salaries were In- 
creased in the appropriation bill to the extent of a total 
of approximately $1,750,000, of which additional sum 
almost $1,000,000 has already been expended, thereby 
reducing the available revenues for corporate purposes 
and rendering it necessary to replenish the corporate 
fund in order to meet the payrolls of the City during the 
months of August, September and October, and until 
such time as the said money should be forthcoming; and 

Whereas, The said offer and promise has since been 
reduced to writing and an instrument signed on behalf 
of seventeen of the said banks in the following form 
was submitted to the Corporation Counsel : 

"Chicago, July 31, 1918. 

"Honorable Samuel A, Ettelson, Corporation Counsel, 
City of Chicago, Illinois: 
Dear Sir — The undersigned banks have formed a 



syndicate which will purchase at their face amount 
vouchers of city employes for wages due upon the 
city payrolls payable in October, November and De- 
cember, 1918, to the aggregate amount of $1,750,000, 
upon the following understanding: 

(1) The respective city employes shall assign in 
form satisfactory to counsel for the syndicate their 
respective vouchers or claims against the City of 
Chicago which shall be for work actually performed 
by such employes for the City; 

(2) All claims or vouchers so purchased shall rep- 
resent salaries or wages actually earned by employes 
of the City under a proper and valid appropriation or- 
dinance of the City Council; 

(3) The City of Chicago shall agree that a suit or 
suits shall be at once instituted against the City of 
Chicago on the respective claims so purchased and 
that as there will be no legal or moral ground for 
defense to euch claims, the appearance of the City 
will be promptly entered and all necessary action 
taken to procure the entry of proper and valid judg- 
ments against the City based upon the claims so ac- 
quired by or on behalf of the syndicate banks; 

(4) It is understood that this action is taken sole- 
ly for the purpose of enabling the City of Chicago to 
meet its obligations to its employes, and to enable 
these employes of the City to receive pay sufficient to 
keep them from actual privation, and it is expected 
that the City authorities in dealing with the matter 
will recognize that the syndicate banks have under- 
taken this proposition, not as a matter of profit, but 
as a public service to the community; 

(5) The City Comptroller shall furnish a correct 
statement of the City's liabilities and of the debt 
limit of the City of Chicago, and the carrying out of 
this undertaking is conditioned upon the opinion of 
counsel for the syndicate that valid judgments will be 
obtainable against the City for the amounts of moneys 
so advanced to purchase the claims of the employes; 

(6) As sooji as it is legally and financially possible 
to do so, the City of Chicago is to undertake to liqui- 
date the judgments which will be rendered under the 
terms of this agreement; 

(7) The City of Chicago, through its officers and 
by action of the City Council, is to take any appro- 
priate legal action which may be requested by counsel 
for the syndicate in order to carry out the conditions 
of this undertaking; 

(8) It is understood that this undertaking may Tie 
presented to the City iCouncil or any Committee 
thereof or any officer of the city for the purpose of 
inducing appropriate legal action to enable the city 
to meet its payrolls until such time as this under- 
taking to purchase the vouchers or claims of the 
employes shall become operative.

No request being made by any two Aldermen present

The motion prevailed. 

The following is the report recommended for pub- 
lication in the foregoing report: 



REPORT op the COMMITTEE ON HOME DEFENSE IN THE 
MATTER OP THE RESOLUTION REFERRED TO SAID COM- 
MITTEE BY THE CITY COUNCIL POR INVESTIGATION OP 
THE CHARGES MADE IN A CERTAIN LETTER, DATED JUNE 
5, 1918. WHEREIN ONE A. C. CALDWELL QUESTIONED 
THE CITIZENSHIP OP ALD. SHELDON W. GOVIER. 

Your Committee has investigated the charge and the 
circumstances in connection therewith insofar as it was 
deemed necessary for the purpose of making a report 
to your Honorable Body. 

The facts would appear to be, that one of Aid. Go- 
vier's constituents, who claimed that his children had 
been sold intoxicating liquors in what is commonly 
called a "blind pig," ran in connection with a drug 
store by A. G. Caldwell, called upon Aid. Govier to 
join with the father of the children, and others, in 
seeing that the matter was properly tried in court; 
and, that when the case was called in court. Aid. Go- 
vier did appear with the father of the children, and 
others, and Aid. Govier's presence greatly irritated 
the said A. C. Caldwell and his attorney. Whereupon 
A. C. Caldwell and his attorney turned their attention 
from the facts in the case to a verbal attack of vitup- 
eration and abuse directed at Aid. Govier, and among 
other things openly stated in court that Aid. Govier 
was not a citizen. 

Later, namely, on June 5, 1918,, the said A. C. Cald- 
well addressed the letter in question to Eugene R. 
Pike, asking Mr. Pike, as Comptroller, to hold up the 
salary of Aid. Govier. The only evidence which the 
said A. C. Caldwell and his attorney were able to furn- 
nish your Committee in substantiation of their charge, 
was a rumor that Aid. Govier was not a citizen, the 
source of which they did not reveal and also that Aid. 
Govier had informed the Election Board in the 30th 
Precinct of his Ward that he was a citizen by Act of 
Congress which fact Aid. Govier states he did not do, 
when, as they claimed, he had been naturalized through 
procedure in the Circuit Court. They further charged 
that the index record of the Circuit Court shows Shel- 
don Govier; whereas, a registration book shows Shel- 
don W. Govier. 

It is our conclusion that the Judge or Clerk of Elec- 
tion one of 'whom is the wife of A. C. Caldwell, who 
made the record, was as likely to be in error in mak- 
ing the record as Aid. Govier was in answering the 
question (in any event the naturalization reverts back 
to an Act of Congress) ; and the fact that the registra- 
tion book might show that Aid. Govier was naturalized 
by an Act of Congress, or by an Act of Congress follow- 
ed by an Act of the Circuit Court, is a trivial matter, 
when taking into consideration the fact that Aid. Go- 
vier has been, and is, a legally naturalized citizen of 
the United States. Jjikewise, the omitting of the ini- 
tial "W" is in all probability a clerical error, for which 
Aid. Govier is not responsible. 

We respectfully submit that in our opinion from an 
investigation of the naturalization record of the Cir- 
cuit Court as of date November 7, 1904, which we have 
examined, Aid. Govier is a citizen of the United States 
and is entitled to all the rights and privileges of a 
citizen including the right to hold offices of public 
trust and to receive compensation therefor. 

We further submit it as our opinion that animosity 
and retaliation were responsible for the said A. C. 



826 



UEPORTS OP COMMITTEES. 



August 5, 1918. 



Caldwell seizing upon trivial technicalities, or clerical 
errors, upon which to base a charge, which, if not dis- 
approved, would do a great injustice to Aid. Govier. 

We further reconnnend that tlie Honorable City 'Coun- 
cil pass a resolution condemning the action of the said 
A, G. Caldwell in making the charges against Aid. Go- 
vier notwithstanding the fact that the said A. C. Cald- 
well has subsequently admitted that Aid. Sheldon W. 
Govier is a citizen of the United States and has at- 
tempted to qualify and deny his charge and has even 
apologized for making same, and that this Honorable 
Body, in consequence of the investigation by this Com- 
mittee, go on record as concurring in the report of the 
Committee that Aid. Govier is a citizen of the United 
States, entitled to hold office, and worthy of the same 
respect which is due any citizen of the United States 
or any officeholder thereof. 

We further recommend that this report be pub- 
lished and made a part of the record of the City Coun- 
cil.

Proposed Boxing Exhibitions at Comiskey Park for Sal- 
vation Army Fund Benefit. 

The Mayor submitted the following communication, 
whicli was ordered published, and consideration of 
which was deferred: 

Office op the Mayor,] 
Chicago, August 13, 1918.^ 

To the Tlonorahle, the City Council of the City of 

Chicago: 

Gentlemen — The newspapers having misrepresented 
what took place with respect to the proposed prize 
fights and sparring or boxing exhibitions at Comiskey 
Park, on Aug. 10, 1918, I submit herewith the corre- 
spondence on that subject, so that you and through you 
the people may have accurate information as to what 
occurred. First, is a letter from L. E. Myers, Chairman, 
to Samuel A. Ettelson, Corporation Counsel, as follows: 

The State Council of Defense,"] 

Cook County Auxiliary, 120 W. Adams St., J. 

Chicago, August 8, 1918.J 

Honorable Samuel A. Ettelson, Corporation Counsel 
City Hall, Chicago, RUnois: 

My Dear Mr. Ettelson— At our first interview 
with respect to the Athletic Carnival to be held Sat- 
urday next at Comiskey Park, for the benefit of the 
Salvation Army fund for the care ana comfort of our 
men overseas, you suggested that I arrange to have 
Comiskey Park taken over by the Federal troops, 
thus relieving the Administration of all responsi- 
bility. 

In accordance with your suggestion, that arrange- 
ment has been perfected, and I telephoned you a 



lew da>'s ago that Company I, Fortieth U. S. Infan- 
try, under command of CaptaiiT Staton, will encamp 
at Comiskey Park tomorrow afternoon and remain 
there until Sunday. 

In view, of all the foregoing, I was this iViorning 
very much surprised to hear that Chief Alcock had 
issued an order to stop the performance slated for 
Saturday and I assume it was done under misap- 
prehension, that is, that Chief Alcoek did not know 
of your suggestion regarding a Military Camp. 

T am afraid the public will misunderstand the 
situation and that the sale of seats will be very 
much effected, thereby substantially decreasing the 
amount of money we want to raise for this very 
worthy purpose. 

Will you be good enough to set Chief Alcock right 
on this situation? We will, of course, be very glad 
to have Chief Alcock police the streets around the 
park, but we dan if he prefers proviae the necessary 
protection through the Eleventh Regiment Illinois 
Reserve Militia. 

Permit me in conclusion to emphasize the fact 
that nothing on Saturday's program in any way vio- 
lates the law. There is to' be wrestling, gladiatorial 
posing, tug of w^ar between the police and fire de- 
partments, and a scientific exhibition of boxing by 
the men of Camp Grant and Fort Sheridan, which is 
a part of their usual course of training to fit them 
for overseas duty, and which will be given Satur- 
day at the express direction of General Martin, Com- 
manding Officer at Camp Grant and Colonel Chap- 
man, Commanding Officer of Fort Sheridan. 

In view of the fact, that this is an entirely mili- 
tary affair, held at the direction of the proper Mili- 
tary Officer, and no way in violation of the law of 
the State, I fail to understand Chief Alcock's order 
and respectfully submit that he ought not to allow 
a false impression to find place in the public mind. 

On Saturday I would be very glad, to have you be 
my guest together with some other patriotic gentle- 
men who are going to attend the affair with me. 
Very truly yours, 
(S^igned) l. E. Myers, 

Chairman. 

The Corporation Counsel replied to Mr. Myers as 
follows: 

Chicago. August 8, 1918. 

Mr. L. E. Myers. Chairman, 120 West Adams St.. 
Chicago: 

Dear Sir — I am in receipt of your letter of today, 
in relation to the athletic carnival to be held Satur- 
day next at Comiskey Park. 

If, as you state, "nothing on Saturday's program 
in any way violates the law," you need have no fear 
of police interference. 

However, let me call your attention to Sections 
231 to 236, both inclusive, of the Criminal Code of 
the State of Illinois, which read as follows: 

'231. Sending Challenge — ^Training For.) Sec. 
231. Whoever sends, publishes or causes to be 
sent or published, or otherwise made known, any 
challenge to fight what is commonly known as a 
prize fight or shall accept any such challenge, or

in the county jail not exceeding six months, and 
fined not exceeding $500. (L. 1869, p. 307, Sec. 1 ; 
p. 112, Sec. 3. 

'232. Engaging In.) Sec. 232. Whoever, by pre- 
vious appointment or arrangement, meets another

not exceeding $1,000. (L. 1869, p. 307, Sec. 1; p.

state, by previous appointment or engagement made 
therein, leaves the state and engages in a fight with 
another person without the limits thereof, shall 
be imprisoned in the penitentiary not exceeding 
five years, or fined not exceeding $5,000. (L. 1869, 
p. 112, Sec. 3. 

'235. Sparring and Boxing Exhibitions.) Sec. 
235. Whoever instigates, carries on, promotes or 
engages in as a witness any sparring or boxing 
exhibition, shall be fined not exceeding $500, or 
confined in the county jail not exceeding six 
months. (L. 1869, p. 307, Sec. 2. 

'236. Preventing.) Sec. 236. Any person who 
shall, upon complaint made before any judge or 
justice of the peace, appear to be about to engage 
in any such fight or sparring or boxing exhibition, 
may be compelled to enter into bond with security 
to keep the peace, as in other cases of threatened 
breaches of the peace.' 

For years, and more especially since the war be- 
gan, many persons, on a variety of pretexts, have 
attempted to evade the above law and promote in 
Chicago prize fights and sparring or boxing exhibi- 
tions. But the city officials who are charged with 
the enforcement of the law have refused to allow 
such exhibitions to be held. 

This situation has been fully explained to you 
many times and you have been told that prize 
fights and sparring or boxing exhibitions would not 
be permitted in this city. 

You were also told, as the fact was, that I had 
taken this matter up directly with the Secretary of 
War and the Secretary of the Navy; that I had re- 
ceived no reply from the Secretary of War, but that 
I had received from the Navy Department a comr 
munication reading as follows : 

'The Bureau has received, by reference from the 
Secretary of the Navy, your letter of July 2nd, 
1918, with reference to correspondence relative to 



boxing bouts planned as part of the Elks program 
on July 6th. 

'It appears from the correspondence that bouts 
of this character are prohibited by the State laws 
of Illinois, and the Navy Department of course 
does not wish to take any action in matters of this 
kind which would be inconsistent or in violation 
with State laws.' 

Notwithstanding all this, you have proceeded to 
advertise the carnival for next Saturday and to 
cause tickets for admission thereto to be sold, on 
the assumption that some way or other you would 
be permitted to violate the State law. 

Hence, your alleged surprise at the attitude taken 
by Chief Alcock is wholly without foundation. 

Your statement that I suggested to you that prize 
fights or boxing or sparring exhibitions could be 
held at Comiskey Park next Saturday provided the 
military authorities took possession thereof is not 
true. Such suggestion was discussed between you 
and me, but it emanated from you and not from me. 
You were referred to Assistant Corporation Counsel 
James W. Breen, who took up the matter with you 
and told you plainly that such exhibitions could not 
be permitted. You then promised Mr. Breen that 
you would procure authority from the Secretary of 
War for the giving of this exhibition. But you have 
failed to do so. 

According to the newspapers, you expect to have 
Jack Dempsey, Jesse Willard, and other well-known 
professional prize fighters on exhibition next Satur- 
day afternoon. And, while, in your letter, you state, 
as above quoted, "that riothing on Saturday's pro- 
gram in any way violates the law" you go on to say : 
"There is to be * * * a scientific exhibition of 
boxing by the men of Camp Grant and Fort Sheri- 
dan." Perhaps when you made the statement in 
your letter, your attention had not been called to 
Section 235, above quoted, which reads as follows : 

'Whoever instigates, carries on, promotes, or 
engages in as a witness, any sparring or boxing 
exhibition, shall be fined not exceeding $500, or 
confined in the County Jail not exceeding six 
month,s.' 

In considering this question, it is important to 
avoid a confusion of issues. 

As above pointed out, the State law positively pro- 
hibits not only prize fights, but sparring or boxing 
exhibitions. 

'The Legislature has frequently considered this 
question and has conclusively established that such 
exhibitions in public are contrary to good morals 
and against the public interest. Their value as a part 
of the training of soldiers and sailors in military 
camps is not a question here involved. The ques- 
tion here presented is as to the legality of such ex- 
hibitions before the general public in a place of 
amusement. 

The city officials are charged with the enforce- 
ment of the State laws, as they find them; and they 
have no right to enforce such laws as they deem wise 
and refuse to enforce such laws as they think un- 
wise. 

And no responsible Federal authority has attempt-

GOMMUNKUTIONS, E'lXl 



August 14, 1918. 



(Ml Id suspciul the State laws with respect to prize 
(igiiliuf; and si)arring or boxing exhibitions. On the 
I'onti'ary, as we have seen, tlic Navy Department has 
takiMi the position tliat such laws sliould be obeyed. 
No one questions the propriety or commendable- 
ness of making contributions to the Overseas Fund 
of tlie Salvation Army. Let there be no misunder- 
standing on that point. Such contributions are most 
praiseworthy and should be encouraged in every 
legitimate way. Everyone should contribute to the 
extent of his ability. But no one having only the 
interests of the soldiers and sailors at heart will 
make his contribution to such fund depend upon 
prize fights and boxing and sparring exhibitions be- 
ing held in violation of the Statutes of tbe State of 
Illinois. 

In short, no one has the slightest desire in any way 
to obstruct contributions to the Overseas Fund of 
the Salvation Army, but every good citizen should be 
opposed to the promotion of prize fights and sparring 
or boxing exhibitions in defiance of the State law. 

In view of the foregoing, you will perceive that it 
is my opinion that Chief Aloock has taken the only 
position which, as Chief of Police, he could take, 
under the law. 

Very truly yours,

Hon. Chester E. Cleveland, First Assistant Corpora- 
tion Counsel. No. 511 City Hall. Chicago, Illinois: 
Dear Sir — I just have your letter of August 8th, 
inclosing copy of a letter same date from L. E. Myers, 
Chairman, and replying thereto I beg to say that this 
Department has nothing to do with the athletic car- 
nival, to be held at Comiskey Park, Saturday, August 
10th. 

Mr. My(^rs' letter to Honorable Samuel A. Ettelson 
states among other things: 

(a) 'At our first interview with respect to the 
Athletic Carnival to be held 'Saturday next at Co- 
miskey Park, for the benefit of the Salvation Army 
fund for the care and comfort of our men over- 
seas, you suggested that I arrange to have Comis- 
key Park taken over by the Federal troops, thus 
relieving the Administration of all responsibility. 
In accordance with your suggestion, that arrange- 
ment has been perfected, and I telephoned you a 
few days ago that Company I, Fortieth U. S. In- 
fantry under command of Captain Staton, will en- 
camp at Comiskey Park tomorrow afternoon and 
remain there until Sunday. 

(b^ 'Permit me in conclusion to emphasize the 
fact that nothing on Saturday's program in any 



way violates the law. There is to be wrestling, 
gladiatorial posing, tug of war between the police 
and fire departments, and a scientilic exhibition 
of boxing by the men of Camp Grant and Fort 
Sheridan, which is a part of their usual course of 
training to fit them for overseas duty, and which 
will be given Saturday at the express direction of 
General Martin, Commanding Officer at Camp 
Grant and Colonel Chapman, Commanding Officer 
at Fort Sheridan.' 

In respect of (a), Captain Staton and Company I, 
'lOth Infantry, have not been authorized to be at 
Comiskey Park on Saturday, and will not encamp 
there. 

In respect of (b) , it is therein stated that the boxing 
will be given 'at the express direction of General 
Martin, Commanding Ofiicer at Camp Grant, and 
Colonel Chapman, Commanding Officer at Fort Sheri- 
dan'. I have no jurisdiction over General Martin, 
but as to Colonel Chapman, Commanding Officer at 
Fort Sheridan I have jurisdiction, and I have to say 
that he will have no direction over what takes place 
at Comiskey Park on Saturday. 

Any troops belonging to the Central Department 
who appear at Comiskey Park Saturday, August 10th, 
will be there for drilling purpose and participants in 
the carnival, but their presence will in no way par- 
take of military occupation, nor will they have any- 
thing whatever to do with the management or con- 
trol of the carnival.

Unpaid Back Taxes on Unlisted Property: Proposition 
of W. F. Mulvihill To Secure Payment. 

The Mayor submitted the following communication, 
which was ordered published and referred to the Com- 
mittee on Finance: 

Office of the Mayor, | 
Chicago, August 14, 1918, j 

To the Honorable the City Council of the City of Chi- 
cago: 

Gentlemen — It is generally understood that a very 
large amount of personal property, consisting of 
moneys, credits, notes, bonds, stocks and like property 
is not listed for taxation in this city. The result, among 
other things, is that the city is severely crippled for 
want of revenue necessary to carry on its business; and, 
furthermore, the burden of taxation is unjustly and in- 
equitably distributed. 

I submit herewith a letter from William F. Mulvihill 
to me, which contains his proposition to aid in discov- 
ering property not listed for taxation. He asks nothing 
for his services and expenses except a small percentage 
of the revenue which shall be produced as the result of 
his efforts. 

In view of your inability to procure adequate rev- 
enue properly to carry on the City's business, I recom- 
mend that you accept Mr. Mulvihill's proposition, as it 
seems to be a very proper means of adding materially 
to such revenue without imposing any burden on the 
City. 

His proposition is as follows: 

"Chicago, July 15, 1918. 

The Hon. Wm. Hale Thompson, Mayor, City Hall, Chi- 
cago : 

Dear Mr. Mayor — As you know, there are large 
sums of money due the City of Chicago as taxes on 
personal property which has been omitted to be 
listed, scheduled and returned for taxation, such 
property consisting of moneys, credits, notes, bonds, 
stocks and shares of capital stock of companies and 
associations not incorporated by the laws of this state, 
owned by persons residing in this city and subject to 
taxation therein, which said taxable property has 



been sequestered and concealed for years, and, be- 
cause of the fact that no evidence of the existence and 
ownership of such taxable property is to be found in 
the public records of Cook County, and because of 
the failure of the several owners of such property to 
list, schedule and return the same for taxation, 
neither the assessors nor the Board of Review have 
been able to discover and to assess the same, by rea- 
son whereof an unequal burden of taxation has been 
imposed upon all other tax-payers and the total 
amount of taxes collected for municipal, as well as 
for school and other purposes, has been materially 
curtailed. 

As a result of extended investigations which have 
been made and are now going forward under my di- 
rection I believe I am in a positifen, if authorized to 
act as counsel for the City of Chicago for that pur- 
pose, to discover and to cause to be listed and as- 
sessed a very considerable amount of personal prop- 
erty, as aforesaid, which has heretofore, for several 
years past, "been omitted in the assessment"; to en- 
force the assessment on such omitted property, in 
accordance with the law, and thus to cause large 
sums in back taxes, due from wealthy tax-evaders, 
to be paid into the treasury for the benefit of the. 
City of Chicago. 

The law expressly empowers the several taxing 
bodies interested in the collection of taxes upon omit- 
ted taxable property to employ counsel to appear be- 
fore the Board of Review and take all necessary steps 
to enforce the assessment on such omitted property. 
I therefore, submit the following proposal : 

In consideration of a proper agreement between the 
City and myself, authorizing me to represent the City 
as counsel for such purpose, I will undertake, at my 
expense, promptly to discover and to report for as- 
sessment and taxation in accordance with the law, to 
the Board of Review, of Cook County, Illinois, such 
property subject to assessment as shall have been 
omitted from assessment for any year or number 
of years, such as money, credits, notes, bonds, 
stocks and shares of capital stock of companies 
and associations not incorporated by the laws 
of this state, owned by persons who are resi- 
dents of the City of Chicago and subject to 
taxation therein, my compensation to be fixed at 
a sum equal to and not more than fifteen percentum 
(15%) of the amount of taxes belonging to the City 
of Chicago actually collected upon such omitted tax- 
able property as I shall report or cause to be reported 
as aforesaid, no payment to be made to me except 
and until the taxes upon such. omitted property are 
actually collected and paid into the treasury, all in- 
vestigations to be made at my expense and no liability 
to attach to the City on account of the same, the said 
fifteen percentum (15%) to include compensation of 
any and all persons employed by or assisting me in 
carrying out the foregoing proposition. 
' In this connection permit me to say that as the 
school and municipal taxes of Chicago are levied upon 
the same assessed properties, the failure of the own- 
ers of the personal property as above to schedule the 
same has deprived the schools of taxes almost equal 
to the amount the City has so far failed to receive, 
and I have, therefore, heretofore made an agreement 
with the Board of Education of the City of Chicago, 
similar in character to the one herein proposed, un- 
der which I am now authorized to represent that body 
as counsel for the same purposes as are herein pro- 
posed. 

My contract with the Board of Edilcation fixes .a 
maximum compensation to me from all taxing bodies 
and the Board of not exceeding thirty percentum 
(30%) of the amount of taxes actually collected for 
school purposes on property reported by me, and pro- 
vides for a proportionate reduction to the Board if 
the City of Chipago or other taxing body interested 
in the collection of taxes upon omitted taxable prop- 
erty shall see fit to employ me in the premises, and 
thus divide the expense of collection between the 
bodies benefitted, the provision reading: 

"It is further understood and agreed by and be- 
tween the parties that should the party of the sec- 
ond part (Wm. F. Mulvihill) consummate and enter

into an agreoniout with tlie City of Chicago, or 
olher taxing- hody interested in the collection ot 
taxes from property subject to assessment which 
' shall have been omitted from assessment for any 
year or number of years, to represent said city or 
other taxing hody as counsel for the purpose of dis- 
covering and reporting for taxation such omitted 
property, then the total amount of compensation to 
he paid'to the party of the second part by all of said 
taxing bodies and said Board of Education combined 
shall not exceed thirty per cent (30%) of the total 
amount of taxes actually collected for the Board of 
Education upon such omitted property discovered 
and reported by the party of the second part; and 
the amount of compensation to be paid to the party 
of the second part by the party of the first part 
(The Board of Education of the City of Chicago) as 
hereinbefore provided shall be reduced to such part 
of said thirty per cent (30%) as will be in propor- 
. tion thereto that part of such total taxes set apart 
by law for school purposes bears to the aggregate 
of such taxes set apart by law for each and all ot 
said taxing bodies represented by the party of the 
second part, including said Board of Education.' 
May I also state that it is my purpose to submit a 
similar proposal to the above to the Trustees of the 
Sanitary District and if the same is accepted I shall 
he happv to reduce the compensation to be paid me 
bv the City of Chicago and by the Board of Education 
in due proportion and in harmony with the above 
agreement, and I am willing to so stipulate in any 
agreement with the City of Chicago. 

If the above proposal meets with your approval I 
trust you will transmit the same forthwith to the 
City Council with such indorsement and suggestions 
as you may deem appropriate. 

Respectfully submitted,

Local Transportation System: Request for a Hearing on 
a Proposed Ordinance. 

The Clerk presented the following communication, 
consideration of which was deferred: 

Greater Chicago Federation, | 
Chicago, III., August 14, 1918. | 
To the Eonorahle Mayor and the Members of the City 
Council: 

Gentlemen — The Greater Chicago Federation has 
given much study to the traction question now being 
considered by the city, and feels that the proceedings 
so far, have been hurried and without any opportunity 



August 14, 1918. 



COMMUNICATIONS, ETC. 



871 



for discussion at public hearings, a right which we 
think the public are entitled to. 

It is true that several hearings were granted but the 
discussion at such hearings has been confined to the 
alluring side of the program, the physical features, 
but no discussion on the general policy, financial, or 
other sides of the question has been invited by the 
Local Transportation Committee in any public hear- 
ings. 

Inasmuch as this is the greatest piece of legislation 
that the city has ever had under consideration, and 
inasmuch as the traction grant is for an indeterminate 
or practically perpetual period, as the traction interests 
will at no future time be required to ask for further 
extension of time, and will only terminate at such time 
as the city may legally acquire if that should ever be 
possible, we think that' the City Council should afford 
very open, free and broad public discussion. 

In order to give free expression and for the pur- 
pose of throwing the entire question open to the pub- 
lic for discussion we ask and do hereby request the 
Mayor and the City Council, to resolve the City Council 
into a committee of the whole, and invite the public to 
appear before it and voice their expression for or 
against the ordinance. 

The Greater Chicago Federation, through its coun- 
sel, is prepared to analyze and give expression on many 
important features of the proposed ordinance, of which 
we believe the entire City Council are not familiar 
with. 

We hope to be able to have the opportunity of ap- 
pearing before your Honorable Body, in a fair, free, 
and uninterrupted appearance, to present our side of 
the question. 



We remain,

Very respectfully.

Local Transportation System: Protests against a Pro- 
posed Ordinance. 

The Clerk presented the following resolutions sub- 
mitted by sundry organizations, which were ordered 
published and placed on file: 

Chicago Political Equality League, | 
Chicago, III., August A2, 1918. j 

To the Eonorahles, Mayor Thompson, and the Members 

of the Chicago City Council: 

Gentlemen — 

Whereas, The Trustee plan as in the traction ordi- 
nance now pending before the City Council means con- 
trol by the traction interests, and does not give the 
city any representation, and 

Whereas, It has hitherto been the public policy 
of the State of Illinois to grant only twenty-year fran- 
chises to street car companies; and that only last year 
the thirty and fifty-year franchises were defeated 
showing that the sentiment of the people is against 
long term grants, and 

Whereas, We believe that this ordinance provides 
for a perpetual franchise which the citizens of Chicago 
will not tolerate, and 



Whereas, We believe this amortization plan is a 
delusion, and Municipal Ownership almost impossible 
because the interest granted in this large over-capi- 
talization would reduce all surplus receipts that make 
up the amortization fund, 

We, The Board of Directors of the Chicago Political 
Equality League, urge you as the people's represen- 
tative elected to protect and care for the democracy 
for which our boys are giving their lives, to vote 
against this proposed unpatriotic ordinance.

Central Edgewater Improvement Association,! 
Chicago, August 13, 1918.J 

To His Honor, the Mayor, and the City Council of 

Chicago: 

Gentlemen — The following resolution was passed 
last evening by the Central Edgewater Improvement 
Association : 

"Whereas, A measure of the most far reaching im- 
portance in the City of Chicago, for the merger of the 
surface and elevated lines, is now before the City 
Council, and about to be reported for action; and 

"Whereas, It is proposed to pass this ordinance for 
a referendum vote at the November election, at a time 
when thousands of voters are in the army, and at a 
time when citizens generally are deeply engaged in 
solving war problems; and 

"Whereas, Well qualified people claim the pro- 
posed ordinance to be a perpetual grant, radically 
changing the former policy of the City Council, which 
has heretofore limited all such franchises to twenty 
years; and 

"Whereas, There is a wide difference of opinion in 
regard to the value of the street railway and elevated 
properties, and the proposed ordinance will legalize 
any inflated values and so place a burden for genera- 
tions to come upon the tax payers of this city; and 

"Whereas, It is contrary to public policy to recom- 
mend the approval by the people of grants of such in- 
calculable value a't a time when there will be little op-

7'o (he Honorables, Mayor Thompson, and the Members 
of the Chicago City Conncil: 

Gkntlemen— At a special meeting of the Edgewater 
and Rogers Park Real Estate Men's Association, held 
on August 12, 1918, called for the purpose of discuss- 
ing Chicago's Traction question resulted in the passing 
of the following resolution: 

Whereas, The present traction question in Chicago 
has come to the most critical situation, and 

'Whereas, On account of the vast difference of opin- 
ion as to the merits of the pending traction ordinance, 
and 

Whereas, The present grants of the traction in- 
terests still have at least nine more years to run mak- 
ing it unnecessary for the present haste of a new grant. 
and 

Whereas, The proposed ordinance has not been per- 
mitted to be thoroughly discussed in public hearings, 
and 

Whereas, The grant is virtually a perpetual grant 
being a change in policy from the present 20-year 
grant, and not best for the interests of the citizens of 
Chicago, and 

Whereas, The proposed ordinance would legalize the 
exaggerated valuations of the surface and elevated 
lines making the price prohibitive should the city be 
granted the power to purchase same, and 

Whereas, Should this ordinance pass the City Coun- 
cil would lose forever the opportunity to barter, com- 
promise, and exact improvements as the only chance 
the city had to obtain anything was when the traction 
interests wanted new franchises, the present ordinance 
being perpetual they will never need to seek permission 
for further grants from the city, and 

Whereas, It will be necessary to obtain legislation 
requiring the abolition of the frontage consent law for 
elevated roads and subways and as it is planned to put 
elevated roads over business streets without the own- 
ers of frontage having any voice in the matter, and 

Whereas, These are but a few of the many objec- 
tions to the proposed ordinance, therefore be it 

Resolved, That the Edgewater and Rogers Park Real 
Estate Men's Association does protest to the aldermen 
of the City Council against putting the people of Chi- 
cago to the expense of a campaign, and to await the 
coming Constitutional Convention, and through amend- 
ments seek the power to make bona fide Municipal 
Ownership possible and be it further 

Resolved, That it is not propfer or patriotic to put 
this referendum before the people at a time wlien they 
will be deeply engrossed with the success of our next 
Liberty loan, other patriotic campaigns, the proposed 
new draft law, therefore, be it further 

Resolved, That we favor the appointment of the 
city "of a commission, with ample power and fmancial 
support, to report such appropriate legislation or such 
changes required in our constitution, together with 
a plan of financing and management, as will make 
public ownership an early possibility, in compliance 
with the wish repeatedly expressed by our people", 
and be it further 



Resolved, That a copy of these resolutions be sent 
lo our Mayor and each alderman of the 25th Ward.

Elevated Railroad System: in Matter of an Extension to 
W. 119th St., Etc. 

The Clerk presented the following communication, 
which was ordered published and placed on file : 

The 119th Street Commercial Club,| 
Chicago, August 13, 1918.J 

To the Honorable William Hale Thompson. Mayor, and 
the City Council of Chicago: 

GENTLEMEN—We respectfully call your attention to 
a petition filed some time ago with the State Board of 
Public Utilities, signed by several thousand citizens, 
asking for an extension of the elevated railroad to 
il9th street, at some point between State and Halsted 
streets. We note with regret that the pending trac- 
tion ordinance provides for an extension of the ele- 
vated railroad on the southeast side to 87th street only. 
If you cannot see your way clear to amend the ordi- 
nance so as to comply with our petition, we would re- 
spectfully ask that you at least make provision for an 
extension to 11 1th street, at some point between Michi- 
gan avenue and Halsted street. 

We feel sure that it would be a good investment for 
the Elevated Railroad Company inasmuch as the in- 
termediate territory is thickly settled, and the ter- 
minal we ask for is in the midst of the Calumet Dis- 
trict, now so largely engaged in the manufacture of 
munitions, and short of houses for its workers. We 
will work hard at the polls in November for the ratifi- 
cation of the ordinance, which has some excellent feat- 
ures, but it is needless to say that compliance with our 
petition would be an added incentive for action. 

Yours respectfully, 
(SJgned) James Gilligan, 

Secretary.

City of Chicago vs. O'Connell: Request for Additional 

Funds for Presentation of Said Case to the 

U. S. Supreme iCourt, 

The Clerk presented the following communication 
submitted by the Corporation Counsel, which was re- 
ferred to the Committee on Finance: 

Department of Law,] 
Chicago, August 13, -1918. 
To the Honorable, the City Council of the City of 

Chicago: 

Gentlemen — At your meeting on August 5, 1918. 
your Honorable Body adopted a resolution (Council 
Proceedings 834-35) to the effect that the case of City 
of Chicago vs. O'Connell, 278 111. 591, should be taken 
to the Supreme Court of the United States for final de- 
termination. 

T-his is the case which involves the power of the 
State Public Utilities Commission to regulate the 
street railways in the City of Chicago. 

We beg to advise you that several months ago we 
sued out a writ of error in this case and filed a trans- 
script of the record and had the case docketed in the 
Supreme Court of the United States. 

The Clerk of that court has furnished an estimate of 
the cost of printing the portions of the transcript 
which are to be printed, and we have paid such esti- 
mate. 

When the case is about to be reached the Clerk of 
the Supreme Court will cause the transcript to be 
printed and then we shall be obliged to prepare printed 
briefs and appear in court and argue the case orally. 
In 'the meantime, there is nothing further that we can 
do. 

This case has been and will continue to be quite ex- 
pensive. Among other items we have paid $340 to the 
Clerk of the United States -Supreme Court on his esti- 
mate of the cost of printing the transcript. 

The city also owes an unpaid bill of $274.30 to Hon. 
Charles W. Vail, Clerk of the State Supreme Court, 
for his costs in preparing the record for the United 
States Court. We have on hand no money to pay this 
bill. 

We agree with your Honorable Body that "it is de- 
sirable that said matters be presented for final deter- 
mination to the Supreme Court of the United States," 
and we hope that you will find some way to supply 
the funds necessary to enable us properly to present 
the case to that court. 

Yours truly, 
(Signed) Chester E. Cleveland, 

First Assistant Corporation Counsel.

The following is said ordinance as passed : 

Whereas, On the 28ih day of April A. D. 1917, the 
City of Chicago by its Commissioner of Public Works, 
after due advertisement for bids, made and entered 
into a contract in writing with C. H. Norwood, who 
was the lowest bidder, by which C. H. Norwood under- 
took and agreed to properly construct, deliver and in- 
stall the entire electrical equipment complete and 
ready for operation for the Franklin-Orleans Street 
Bridge across the Chicago River, and to furnish and 
provide all labor, tools, facilities and appurtenances 
required for that purpose to which contract for its 
terms in detail reference is hereby made; and 

Whereas, Said contract contained the terms of pay- 
ment to be made by ttie City of Chicago to said C. H. 
Norwood thereunder being in part as follows: "It is 
further agreed by said City that lif the rate of progress 
be satisfactory to the Commissioner of Public Works, 
estimates in the usual form will be issued to said 
party of the first part (C. H. Norwood) during the 
making of said improvements for eighty-five per cent 
(85%) of the value of the work completed and ac- 
cepted at the time of issuing such estimate, the re- 
maining fifteen per cent (15%) being reserved until 
the final completion and acceptance of the whole of 
said work." 

Whereas, Owing to the abnormal conditions in the 
labor and material markets and the severe cold 
weather during last winter, the work on the substruc- . 
ture of this bridge was delayed and the substructure 
is not ready to receive the superstructure; and 

Whereas, The fabrication of the structural steel of 
the superstructure is now being delayed by war condi- 
tions and the date of delivery of this material is un- 
certain, the Contractor for the electrical equipment is 
unable to proceed with the worlt on his contract; 

Whereas, The work of installing electrical equip- 
ment is deferred through no fault of C. H. Norwood, 
and is directly dependent on the progress of the work 
on the superstructure; therefore, 

Be it ordained by the City Council of the City of 
Chicago: 

Section 1. That the Commissioner of Public 
Works of said City of Chicago be, and he is hereby 
authorized to modify the said contract between the 
City of Chicago and said C. H. Norwood, so as to au- 
thorize the payment by the City to said C. H. Norwood 
on account of said contract for electrical conduit pipe 
delivered at the City store room at the Municipal 



PlanI, 31st street and Sacramento avenue, in a sum not 
to exceed -$1200.00, said amount being the value of 
the conduit pipe so delivered but not installed. Pro- 
vided, however, that such modification of such con- 
tract shall be made only by and with the consent of 
the surety of the bond given by said C. H. Norwood as 
security for the performance by said Company of said 
contract. 

Section 2. This ordinance shall be in force and ef- 
fect from and after its passage and approval.

Track Elevation. 

The Committee on Track Elevation submitted the 
following report, which was ordered 

Published and placed on file: 



Committee on Track Elevation, 
Chicago, August 14, 1918. 
To the Honorable, the Mayor and City Council: 

Gentlemen— Your Committee on Track Elevation beg 
leave to submit the following report of its activities 
for the first half of the Council year 1918-1919: 

When your Committee on Track Elevation took up 
its labors for this year it was confronted with the fol- 
lowing conditions : 

The railroads had passed from private management 
to federal government control, under the direction of 
William G. McAdoo, Director General of Railroads, and 
local railroad representatives advised your committee 
that, under a ruling of the Director General, the rail- 
road companies were prevented from doing any track 
elevation work, either new or uncompleted. 

No one thing is more vital or has contributed more 
to the proper development of Chicago and to the safety 
and welfare of its inhabitants than track elevation, and 
a cessation of track elevation work, especially the com- 
pletion of work under way, would mean a serious set- 
back to our city, and it was apparent to your committee 
that its first duty was to endeavor to obtain a modifica- 
tion of the order of the Director General of Railroads, 
or effect a situation that would permit the completion 
of the most necessary track elevation work under way. 

With that view in mind, a delegation representing 
your committee conferred with the Director General 
at Washington, D. C, on May 15, 1918, and urged upon 
him the necessity of permitting the completion of un- 
finished track elevation work in Chicago, together with 
the desirability of negotiating with railroad companies 
for track elevation ordinances for future work. As a 
result of this conference your committee learned that 
the ruling of the Director General relative to track 
elevation work was not as broad and inclusive as had 
been represented by the officials of the railroad com- 
panies, and your committee was advised by the Director 
General to take up our local situation with Mr. H.'-M. 
Aishton, Regional Director for this district. 

Upon the return of the committee from Washington, 
a conference was held with Mr. H. M. Aishton at which 
time a program of work was outlined, and after a trip 
of inspection of the various track elevation projects 
under way, followed by other conferences, the railroad 
companies were directed to continue with such work as 
was deemed necessary to safeguard the interest of the 
public, with the result that, as outlined to your com- 
mittee on track elevation in a communication from Mr. 
Aishton dated July 23, 1918, the following has been ~ 
accomplished : 

1. Grade crossing of the Kensington & Eastern Rail- 
road (I. C. R. R.) at 111th, 113th and 115th streets, 
near the Pullman Company's works: 

The grade crossings of these three streets have been 
eliminated; the Kensington & Eastern tracks have 
been taken from the streets and temporary terminal 
has been installed south of 115th street. 

2. Grade crossing at Cottage Grove avenue, near 
95th street of Chicago & Western Indiana Railroad and 
Chicago, Rock Island and Pacific Railway Company: 

The tracks have been planked from curb to curb and 
contract has been let for the paving outside of the 
tracks, which will be completed by the first of August, 



August 14, 1918. 



REPORTS OF COMMITTEES.

dependent upon delivery of material. When the pav- 
ing is completed the street at the crossing should be in 
equally good condition as the street is at other points 
where not affected by railroads. 

The uniform police flagmen have /been guarding the 
crossing for some time. 

3. Completion of three subways on Chicago. Rock 
Island & Pacific (Railway atVincennes road, 87th and 
88th streets: 

The work at the Vincennes subway is 60% completed; 
at 87th street. 80% completed, and at 88th street, 85% 
completed. All of the work will be flnished by Octo- 
ber 1st. 

4. Grade crossings at 64th, 65th, 67th and 69th 
streets of the Baltimore & Ohio Chicago Terminal Rail- 
road: 

On account of the Pennsylvania Railway completing 
their track elevation, insofar as it affects the streets, 
we find it necessary in order to comply with our agree- 
ment, to proceed at once with the elevation of the B. 
& 0. C. T. tracks, which work is now under way and will 
be completed, at least so far as streets are concerned, 
by the last of the year. 

5. Grade crossings on Englewood Connecting Rail- 
road (Pennsylvania Lines) : 

The crossings of this line are being put in first-class 
condition and additional flagmen placed at the cross- 
ings. I will advise you later and more definitely the 
progress on this project. 

6. Grade crossings of the Illinois Central on the 
South Chicago Branch: 

Additional watchmen have been placed at 80th place 
and Oglesby avenue. 

We have not yet reached a satisfactory arrangement 
for the protection of these crossings and will advise 
you further concerning them. 

Since receipt of the above communication another 
conference was held with Mr. Aishton at which time 
a plan was formulated for the thorough protection of 
all grade crossings of the Illinois Central (Railroad on 
the South Chicago Branch, the details of which are to 
be outlined to us in a letter from Mr. Aishton in the 
near future. 

It is the hope of your committee, through the co- 
operation of Mr. Aishton, to push to as early comple- 
tion as possible, all uncompleted track elevation work 
and to effect engineering and other plans and to ne- 
gotiate with the railroad companies for the acceptance 
of ordinances for track elevation work to be done as 
soon as war conditions and the unusual demands upon 
the railroads will permit. 

Your committee wishes to express its appreciation 
of the full and hearty co-operation given it by Mr. 
Aishton and his staff, and also its appreciation of the 
assistance rendered to it in its work by his Honor, 
Mayor Thompson, and his administration. 

Respectfully submitted, 
(Signed) George M. Maypole, "

REPORTS OF COMMITTEES. 



August 14, 1918. 



Chicago, August 14, 1918. 



To Ike Mai/or and Aldermen of the Citu of Chicago in 
City Council Assembled: 

Your Commitlee on Gas Litigation, having under 
coiisidtM-ation tli^ report of Special Counsel for this 
Conunittec which is herewith attached, beg leave to 
report and recommend that the attached resolution and 
order be recommended for passage. 

Respectfully submitted, 
(Signed) H. D. Capitain, 

Chairman. 

To the Honorable, the Committee on Gas Litiaation of 
the Citu Council: 

In accordance with the instructions of the Commit- 
tee, I present herewith an order to be suggested for 
passage by the City Council for the following reason,s : 

It is my opinion, first, that under the contract ordi- 
nance of 1917 the Peoples Gas Light and Coke Company 
is required to furnish gas at the rates provided in that 
ordinance until those rates are changed by action of 
the Oity Council; second, that the injunctive order of 
the Circuit Court issued August 2, 1911, by Judge Gib- 
bons still restrains the Company from charging more 
than 80 cents per thousand cubic feet; third, that the 
order of the Public Utilities Commission of July 31 
does not legally authorize the Company to charge the 
increased rates provided therein, for both of these 
reasons. 

Because the Gibbons injunction is still in force, I 
do not believe it necessary at the present time to file a 
bill for injunction. The issue between the City and 
the Company can be more appropriately litigated either 
upon a motion of the Company to modify the Circuit 
Court .injunction or by contempt proceedings instituted 
by the City for violation of that injunction. Inasmuch, 
however, as the City's rights depend largely upon ac- 
tion by a court of equity, the City should exhibit entire 
willingness to deal fairly with the Gas Company, even 
though the Gas Company refuses to deal fairly with 
the City. 

The application of the Company to the Utilities Com- 
mission was printed in the Council Proceedings of 
January 18 and referred to the Committee on Gas, Oil 
and Electric Light. At a meeting of this committee 
on January 17 Mr. Boetius H. Sullivan, attorney for the 
Gas Company, stated that the Company did not take the 
position that it had broken the ordinance, but rather 
that it was making a "temporary appeal for modifica- 
tion." Yet the Company requested no action by the 
City Council to modify the ordinance of Jun© 25, 1917, 
but endeavored to ignore the City Council and seek 
relief elsewhere. Despite its conduct, the Company 
might argue in a court of equity, as it has -already 
argued before the Utilities Commission, that the City 
Council was unwilling to act and to fulfil its responsi- 
bilities in the regulation of gas rates, and it would 
strengthen the City's position if the Council should 
give cl&ar evidence of its readiness to fulfill all its re- 
sponsibilities in this matter. 

The first year of the ordinance is now passed, and 
the City Council may properly consider whether any 
revision of the ordinance is desirable. Information as 
to this can be furnished to the Committee on Gas, Oil 



and Electric Light very promptly by the City's repre- 
sentatives. It appears particularly desirable that the 
Peoples (^,as Light and Coke Company should be re- 
quired to definitely state its position, as suggested in 
the attached resolution, in order that it can take no 
advantage from its present false claim that City Coun- 
cil regulation is impractical and unjust to public utili- 
ties. Whenever the City Council exhibits its readi- 
ness and ability to handle utility problems fairly and 
promptly, it replies most effectively to the arguments 
of the public service corporations against home rule. 

Respectfully submitted, 
(^^'gned) Donald R. Righberc!, 

Special Counsel. 
August 12, 1918. 

Whereas, It is provided in the ordinance passed 
June 25, 1917, and accepted by The Peoples Gas Light 
and Coke Company July 31, 1917, that "Neither the 
City nor the Company shall alter, or seek to alter, the 
rates, standards or service regulations herein provided 
during the period of twelve months following the ac- 
ceptance of this ordinance," which period has now 
expired; and, 

Whereas, By acceptance of said ordinance the said 
Comipany agreed that the City of Chicago, by action 
of the City Council, should have the power, and ex- 
pressly conceded the authority of the City from and 
after the date of the acceptance of said ordinance, to 
regulate the rates to be demanded and the standards 
and service to be maintained by said Company in the 
manufacture and distribution of gas in the City of 
Chicago; and 

Whereas, It appears from the Journal of the Pro- 
ceedings of the City Council of January 18, 1917, that the 
said Company claimed at that time that the rates pro- 
vided in the ordinance of June 25, 1917, did not pro- 
vide sufiicient revenue to enable the Company to carry 
on its business or to meet the demands upon it for 
service, which representations of said Company were 
referred to the Committee on Gas, Oil and Electric 
Light, under the direction of which Committee an in- 
vestigation has been made of the operations of the 
Comipany, and whereby information has been obtained 
by the City's representatives necessary for any ad- 
justment of rates or standards of service which might 
be deemed advisable after the period of twelve months 
following the acceptance of said ordinance; therefore 
it is 

Ordered, That the Committee on Gas, Oil and Elec- 
tric Light make due inquiry to determine whether it 
is advisable to revise the rates, standards or service 
regulations provided in the ordinance of June 25, 1917, 
and particularly that said Committee request from the 
president and directors of The Peoples Gas Light and 
Coke Company a formal statement, first, as to whether 
said Company claims that it has ever requested the 
City Council of the City of Chicago to revise the rates, 
standards or service regulations provided in the ordi- 
nance of June 25, 1917; and, second, as to whether said 
Company desires at the present- time to request the 
City Council of the City of Chicago to make any revi- 
sion of the rates, standards or service regulations pro- 
vided in said ordinance.

ment of the Public School System of Chicago and for 
a number of years has been Superintendent of the 
Public Schools, and recognized as one of the world's 
promiinent and constructive educators; Therefore 
be it 

Resolved, That in the death of John D. Shoop the 
City of Chicago has lost an able and useful citizen 
and official who gave his best efforts to the advance- 
ment of our Public School System and the cause of 
education; and, be it further 

Resolved, That as a tribute of respect to his mem- 
ury and life-long public service these resolutions be 
spread upon the records of the City Council and that 
a copy thereof suitably engrossed be forwarded to 
the bereaved family as a testimonial of our heart- 
felt sympathy. 

Aid. Fisher moved to adopt the foregoing resolution. 
The motion was carried unanimously by a rising 

vote. 

Aid. Fisher presented the following resolution, which 

was ordered published and referred to the Committee 

on Finance: 



tax payers of the City of Chicago the corporate fund 
of the City receives but 17^/4 cents of each dollar 
collected, out of which meager percentage it 
must carry on all the manifold and gigantic munici- 
pal activities in all departments for the general pub- 
lic welfare, involving an annual wage-roll alone of 
over nineteen millions of dollars; and 

Whereas, Many of the other public bodies who 
are the beneficiaries of the taxes levied are allowed, 
under the law, such inequitably large proportions 
of taxes collected as enable them not only to per- 
form their required, but much more limited func- 
tions and also to carry large surplus balances 
throughout their fiscal year; and 

Whereas, The City of Chicago with its steadily 
increasing activities, and notwithstanding the most 
rigid curtailment possible in annual expenditure 
appropriations, is compelled to discount and pay in- 
terest on its revenue twelve months in advance of 
its collection, yet with a deficit piling up and increas- 
ing in each succeeding year from one to three mil- 
lion dollars annually; and 

Whereas, It is therefore apparent that the im- 
mediate and imperative financial remedy required 
should first be sought, not by increasing the taxes 
of the already overburdened tax payer, but rather 
by the securement of such state legislation as shall 
give to Chicago her just and equitable proportion of 
the taxes already levied; to the end not only that 
municipal bankruptcy may be averted, but also that 
there may be no curtailment of those benefits and 
protections to which the public is entitled by virtue 
of such taxation; now, therefore be it 

Resolved, That the Council Committee on Finance 
he and it is hereby requested, prior to entering on 
its labors of compiling the annual appropriation bill 
for the year 1919, to take up for its consideration 
the drafting of such form of legislation as shall be 
competent to secure to the corporate fund of the 
City of Chicago, by legislative re-apportionment of 
the taxes levied, such an increased, just and equitable 
proportion thereof as shall be adequate to meet the 
financial requirements of the City of Chicago in the 
conduct of its legitimate municipal activities; and, be 
it further 

Resolved, That the Committee on Finance at as 
early a date as practicable, submit such draft of legis- 
lation to the City Council for its approval, and for 
presentation to the next General Assembly of the 
State of Illinois for enactment into law. 

The Board of Local Improvements submitted a rec-

Whereas, On the 10th day of April, A. D. 1917, the 
City of Chicago, by its Commissioner of Public Works, 
after due advertisement for bids, made and entered 
into contract in writing with the Great Lakes Dredge 
& Dock Co., which was the lowest bidder, by which 
the Great Lakes Dredge & Dock Co., undertook and 
agreed to construct the sub-structure for the Franklin- 
Orleans St. Bridge across the Chicago River, in said 
City of Chicago, and to furnish and provide all labor, 
tools, facilities and appurtenances required for that 
purpose, to which contract for its terms in detail 
reference is hereby made; and 

Whereas, Said contract contained the terms of pay- 
ment to be made by said City of Chicago to said Great 
Lakes Dredge & Dock Co., thereunder, neing in part 
as follows : 

"If the rate of progress be satisfactory, to the 
Commissioner of Public Works, estimates and vouch- 
ers in usual form will be issued to the contractor 
for eighty-five per cent (85%) of the value of the 
work completed at the time of issuing such esti- 
mate, less all sums previously paid or retained in 
accordance with the terms of the contract, the re- 
maining 15% being reserved until the final com- 
pletion and acceptance of the whole of said work," 
and 

Whereas, Owing to the abnormal conditions due to 
strikes, shortage of labor, adverse winter weather, war 
and other circumstances beyond the control of the con- 
tractor, the sub-structure work has been delayed so 
that the contractor has been unable to place in the 
sub-structure large quantities of creosoted oak and 
pine timber, which are stored at the bridge site, and 
which. under the terms of the contract could not be 
paid for until placed in the sub-structure; and 

Whereas, The Great Lakes Dredge & Dock Go. states 
that they have had the purchase "price of the timber 
tied up for the past six months, and have been put to 
additional expense in storing and re-handling this 
material at the bridge site, and are desirous of obtain- 
ing a partial payment on the contract price, to partially 
reimburse them for the expense thus far incurred; 
therefore. 

Be it ordained by the City Council of the City of 
Chicago: 

Section 1. That the Commissioner of Public Works 
of the City of Chicago be, and he is hereby authorized 
to modify the said contract between the City of Chi- 
cago and the Great Lakes Dredge & Dock Co., so as to 
authorize the payment by the City of Chicago to said 
Great Lakes Dredge & Dock Co. for creosoted oak 
timber and crieosoted pine timber required in the 
Franklin-Orleans Bridge sub-structure, and stored at 
the bridge site, an amount equal to sixty per cent 
(60%) of the contract price of such timber in place, 
the payment at this rate to be made only after the 
timber is stored and properly protected from the ele- 
ments, to the complete satisfaction of the Commis- 
sioner of Public Works; provided, however, that such 
modification of said contract shall be made only by 
and with the consent of the surety on the bond given

by the said Great Lakes Dredge & Dock Co., as security 
for tlie performance by said company of said contract. 
It is expressly understood that any payment in ad- 
vance of the placing of timber in the sub-structure 
is not to be construed as relieving the contractor of 
full responsibility for the material so stored and its

terms of the specifications. Neither is such payment 
to be construed as an acceptance of material for con- 
struction purposes, or as a waiver to further in- 
spection.

effect from and after its passage and approval.
